Cofounder and Lead Instructor, Rithm School
I’ve been involved in teaching and education for more than ten years. While a graduate student at UCLA I taught hundreds of budding engineers, and after completing my Ph.D. in 2012 I joined a company that supported middle and high school math teachers with great lesson materials. During this time I transitioned into web development, and in 2015 I joined Galvanize as a Web Development Instructor. After about a year, I cofounded Rithm along with Elie and Tim. In my spare time, I enjoy writing; my first book, Power-Up: Unlocking the Hidden Mathematics in Video Games, was released by Princeton University Press in 2017.
